about three and one-half times mose
than the January average for the
years 1910-14. According to reports
from Wisconsin crop correspondents,
farm workers average $93 a month
with board and room, and $126 a
month with a house but no meals.
These rates are about $10 per month
below the rates reported in January
of last year.
Wages paid to workers employed
by the day average $4.60 with board
and room and $5.80 without board and
room. Workers employed by the hour
receive 77 cents without board or
room. These rates are all somewhat
lower than paid by the state's farmers
a year ago.
